1. The worst tenancy of my life and constant invasion of privacy

By gimartyna - stayed here from 15th November 2017 to 15th June 2018

The landlady is a woman from hell, as well as her partner. They were constantly patronizing me, inspecting the property, and taking pictures without my permission. They refused to give me a key to the front door of the building and it was extremely inconvenient, as I always had to ask a concierge to open the door for me. I was refused to install the Internet in the flat and threatened that I would have to pay for any damage or work needed to restore the flat to previous condition at the end of my tenancy.

Several issues with the flat were blamed on me although they were outside of my control. Landlords were suggesting that I was blocking water from draining (because the bathtub is blocked and even the tenant after me didn't have it unlocked), blaming me for poor ventilation, although there is no vent in the bathroom (nor a window), restricting form using the bath as a shower! They also suggested that I scratched their bathtub enamel, with abrasive creams to clean the bathtub?!
They installed marble countertops in the kitchen, which apparently needed to be treated with a special cream every three weeks. I have never heard of this before but it seems like an extremely unsuitable surface to install in a rented flat. They kept insisting that they need access to the flat on a regular basis to do the treatment, since the beginning they were threatening me that this was essential as there was already limescale forming around the taps.
The landlady wouldn't let me pay the council tax myself as she was still registered in the property and her post was coming to the flat all the time - this is illegal. In the end, she took 600£ from my deposit for no damages at all but I guess this is the way she is doing her business. I have been renting properties across Europe for last 4 years and have never experienced such an intrusive, unreasonable and rude behaviour from a landlord.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE TO RENT THIS PROPERTY. DON'T LISTEN TO AGENTS WHO WILL TELL YOU ANYTHING TO ONLY RENT THIS FLAT AND GET THEIR FEES.
